I was wondering what books you guys are reading. Chris Shugart mentioned Fountainhead in his writing, and as result now I’m hooked on all things Ayn Rand. Currently I’m reading The Fountainhead, which will be followed by Atlas Shrugged. I also plan to read Pultarch’s Lives. So let’s hear it, what are you guys reading? [/quote]
Well, who is John Galt? Okay, I’ll give it away — its anyone who chooses to live according to Reason. ;>
You do know that reading books like Rand’s, and by that I means really reading them and not glossing over them, will make you unhappy? Her philosophic tenets are greatly at odds with what most people believe; we’ve had 200 years of irrational Romanticism (Kant, Hegel, Fichte, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Comte, Freud) and the vast majority of people are highly infected with such madness. To them, you will appear as a douchebag/asshole.
Ah well, unhappiness has its benefits!
